Be My Pet, Better Yet Get Your Own Pet

I got an email today from a former New Schooler classmate and figured I'd post it on my blog 'cause seriously I like animals and you should too.

Fellow animal lovers, fosters, volunteers…

I am writing to announce that MUTTS & MITTS OF BROOKLYN will be holding its FIRST outdoor adoption & foster event this SATURDAY, MAY 24th from NOON-6P.

LOCATION: 651 Bergen Street, right behind Barrette Bar, on the corner of Vanderbilt. (Brooklyn, Prospect Heights)

DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 24th, Noon to 6P

All of Mutts & Mitts cats & dogs are homeless animals from the Brooklyn community. We will have on display several sweet and adorable cats and dogs who are in dire need of foster and adoption. If you do not know what fostering entails, please see details below.


We are also seeking VOLUNTEERS, people to TRANSPORT animals and a few extra SUPPLIES for the event. If you are interested in volunteering or can donate or allow us to borrow for the weekend the following, please be in touch right away!

Supplies we need:

Crates—Small dog crates to use for the cats

Leashes & Collars

Blankets & Towels


Cat Food

Fostering for MMOB: Fostering a rescue animal is both a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the companionship of an animal without making a lifelong commitment and to provide shelter and love for an animal in dire need. It is FREE to foster although since we are a new rescue organization and not yet eligible for state funding, we greatly appreciate if fosters are able to provide food and litter in the case of cats. All medical care is provided for by MMOB!

Adopting from MMOB: Adopting a rescue animal is a rewarding experience for both the animal and the adopter. You will know you have helped save the life of an animal who might have otherwise been euthanized. There is an adoption fee of $100 for a cat & $200 for a dog. These are necessary fees to cover the expenses of each animal’s care while with MMOB. Most animals cost us above and beyond that amount. Each animal has been provided with vet care which includes spay/neutering, current vaccinations and microchipping.

We hope to see you there! And please pass this along to anyone you know who may be interested in fostering or adopting, volunteering, posting it on their blogs/websites/listservs/etc, or simply passing it along themselves!! Be sure to check out our blog and myspace page too!! &
